Cleaning Gold Jewelry at Home



Our customers frequently ask, “How do I keep my jewelry clean?” Well, unfortunately, there’s no one answer (because much depends on the metals and gems of your particular piece as well as your average usage).

Gold has its own particular “rules” which were recently detailed in June’s InStyle magazine.

1. Create a mild cleaning solution with warm water and a few drops of liquid dishwashing soap.

2. Soak the piece for 15 minutes.

3. Gently scrub the piece with a soft-bristle toothbrush to reach every nook and cranny.

4. Rinse with warm water.

5. Blot dry with a soft cloth and let air dry.

We like the simplicity!

Oh…and don’t forget: keep your gold jewelry (as well as other types) away from chlorine bleach, which will discolor metals over time.
